Team NZ working to repair capsize damage

Brits retire from America's Cup trials race with damage

Bermuda - Emirates Team New Zealand capsized in high winds on Tuesday, catapulting some of the crew into the water and handing rivals Britain's Land Rover BAR their first win of the America's Cup semifinal.

The winners of each semifinal progress to the challenger final, with the victor taking on defending champions Oracle Team USA for the America's Cup. I think if we can just keep the momentum going that will be our best chance moving forward.

All crew members were reported safe as the race against Ben Ainslie's Land Rover BAR was black-flagged and support crews rushed to the aid of the crippled Kiwi catamaran.

SoftBankTeam Japan open up a 3-1 lead by winning both races on day 2 (June 6) in the Louis Vuitton America's Cup Challenger Playoffs semi-finals.

However, the focal point of discussion back on the dock after an exciting day of close racing in trying, flat water conditions was Outteridges dramatic and unscheduled swim.

Devoid of their captain, the Swedes gave up the ghost in Bermuda's Great Sound and retired, allowing the Kiwis to freely sail to victory. The British have been trying for 166 years to win back the silver trophy they lost to the schooner America in 1851, and they'll have to wait at least two more years to try again. But in the final race of the day, Burling got the better start and barely looked back as he left Ainslie in his wake.


Ainslie managed to raise 90 million pounds ($116 million) to fund his campaign, building a massive team headquarters in Portsmouth on the south coast of England. And a huge thank you to everyone back home in Britain for supporting us.

Team Japan drew another penalty when the two boats nearly touched at gate five in the final race of the day, handing Artemis a comfortable win.

In the first race, Barker was over the starting line early and had to slow to two lengths behind Artemis to clear the penalty.

The mishap occurred during the days third and final match with Artemis barely ahead of the charging Kiwis by four metres as the teams closed in on the weather mark.

"Given the fatal accident involving a British sailor, Andrew "Bart" Simpson, in a similar - albeit larger - foiling America's Cup catamaran four years ago, the sailing world held its breath".
